Dr James Poskett new book release

James Poskett, Horizons: A Global History of Science (Penguin, 2022)

https://www.penguin.co.uk/books/313423/horizons/9780241394090.html 

We are told that modern science was invented in Europe, the product of great minds like Nicolaus Copernicus, Isaac Newton, Charles Darwin and Albert Einstein. But this is wrong. Science is not, and has never been, a uniquely European endeavour.

Horizons pushes the history of science beyond Europe, exploring the ways in which scientists from Africa, America, Asia and the Pacific fit into the story. Challenging both the existing narrative and our perceptions of revered individuals, above all this is a celebration of the work of scientists neglected by history. 

“Hugely important,” Jim Al-Khalili.

“Revolutionary and revelatory,” Alice Roberts.
